The American Civil Liberties Union is calling out a Louisiana charter school for forcing female students to take pregnancy tests and kicking them out if they turn up pregnant.
The American Civil Liberties Union says that Delhi Charter School's policy violates constitutional rights and unfairly discriminates against female students. The advocacy group wrote a letter asking the school to change the policy and threatening legal action if it doesn't.
"The policy states that if a teacher or administrator suspects a female student of being pregnant the school can require her to have a pregnancy test and even select the physician. If the student is pregnant, according to the policy, “the student will not be permitted to attend classes on the campus of Delhi Charter School…and will be required to pursue a course of home study.”
